Jacqueline Hurley painted her first work as a tribute to her friend, a Royal Marine tragically killed in Afghanistan. In our winter edition, her art features on our cover and she tells us more about her War Poppy Collection on page 15.
The collection is helping to fundraise for many Forces charities with 10 per cent of print sales going to The Royal British Legion and The Royal Marines Association charity, Adam’s Hoofing Hut.
